Kind-hearted Adie Fiddy proved a cut above after braving the shave and raising hundreds of pounds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The sponsored event was among the highlights of a successful fundraising day at Wymondham Sports Bar.
There was also a bumper raffle during the afternoon while in the evening, punters donated money to pick songs on the jukebox.
All proceeds went to EACH and a cheque for £1,540 was handed to Community Fundraiser Tim Jenkins by bar manager Ryan Parfitt and landlady Nikki Francis.
Ryan, who has been managing the bar for three years, said: “It was the first time we’ve held a charity night but great fun and very successful.
“We were thrilled to collect so much and that was largely down to Adie, who raised between £700 and £800.
“He was a really good sport. It’s not the first time he’s had his head shaved and he’s already growing it for another fundraiser next year.
“We’d also like to say thanks to all our customers, who turned out in force and got in the spirit of the day.
“Big thanks must also go to the business community in Wymondham, who between them donated around 30 prizes for our raffle.”
Ryan said the organisers were particularly thankful to customers Kim Woodbine and Jonathan Wickham, who helped organise the fundraiser on 16th October.
“A lot of time and effort went into arranging the event and it was a big joint-effort,” added Ryan.
“It was great supporting such a fantastic, worthwhile cause by organising something right here in the heart of our community.”
EACH provides care and support for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk.
It has three hospices, including one at The Nook, in Framingham Earl.
